How to see total traffic in a given time period with new "Monitor" graphs?



  • Hi,

    On the old RRD Graphs system in 2.2.6 you could see total bandwidth for a time period, such as a month or a day or whatever. Now I can't seem to get that data.

    Anyone know how to see total data transferred for a given time period in the Monitor graphs on 2.3.x? inpass total and outpass total are showing the same values as inpass and outpass above.

    Thanks



  • The Monitor graphs don't provide that data anymore. RRD is not the most accurate way to be tracking total traffic anyway, as it loses accuracy as soon as 8 hours because it averages data to reduce the amount of data needed to be stored long-term. If you want to track this using RRD's data, you can add the "RRD Summary" package, which will add an item to the Status menu allowing you to see the RRD total traffic numbers with some basic settings.

    jdillard has been working on bringing vnstat over to the 2.3.x world as a more accurate way to track total traffic, providing graphs for a variety of time periods (I believe vnstat can show daily, weekly, and monthly graphs, though what he will have available, I don't know). A couple of his posts over in this thread include links to screenshots of the graphs.

    Ok sounds good, thanks for the info!
